    There was a"stunt" pulled in Hong Kong back in the 1980's ..... more so on Lantau Island at the seafood restaurants - you were given a towel to refresh yourself with when seated :) and again when you had finished your meal :D .... you could flick the towels up into the ceiling fans and see where they would fly off to and whose head or tale or plate they'd end up in :rolleyes: ..... some people had no sense of fun ;)

    Yes ! ...but I don’t remember those wrappers......maybe it was ‘cause my parents could only afford the generic brands ?
    They were a special treat for our snow holiday. We would have a special skiing food box that my mother would buy something every week for......after 6 months we had accumulated almost enough non perishables for the trip.
    Early days saw us skilled in frugal economies ......;)

    The wrappers do look wrong....... but here were we all munching on a product, we believed astronauts ate!
